Placing his career on hold indefinitely, Uematsu wrote that his return to work would be depend on his recovery. He did not want to continue working while ill and produce subpar music not up to his usual standard.

Best known for his work scoring the Final Fantasy series, Uematsu also composed the scores for games such as Chrono Trigger, Blue Dragon, Lost Odyssey and the stirring main theme for Super Smash Bros. Brawl.

Everyone at Eurogamer would like to wish Uematsu a swift recovery.
